Going through photos to make a powerpoint presentation for my nana’s wake. I absolutely love this photo of her. What a beautiful, joyful woman.

I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free.
I’m following the path God has laid, you see.
I took His hand when I heard His call.
I turned around and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
to laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found the peace on a sunny day.
If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joys.
A family shared, a laugh, a kiss,
oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I’ve savoured much,
good family, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee,
God wanted me now; He set me free.
